Diamond Valley Lake Boating

Because Diamond Valley Lake is a drinking water supply, no body contact with the water is allowed and special regulations govern the types of boats, engines, and fuels that may be used in the lake.

Play it safe. Call and make a reservation even if you are bringing your own boat. Parking is limited.

A summary of the Boating Regulations and the Inspection Procedures are provided below. More complete information can be found at the following websites:

Diamond Valley Boat Inspections

An inspection of all vessels is required before they enter the lake. This inspection is to prevent the spread of Quagga and Zebra Mussels. All vessels must be clean, drained, and dry prior to entering Diamond Valley Lake.

Inspections are from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily at the Searl Parkway entrance to the east marina. This is the first gate once you turn off of Domenigoni Parkway. Boats that pass inspection receive a sticker, which means you won't have to be inspected again. The following items are the key things they will be checking:
